What is ABA?

9079_ACM-72ppi_Small-

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the application of scientifically validated behavioral principles to achieve performance that is socially significant.

 

ABA is a data-driven therapy that looks for functional relationships between one’s behaviors and his or her environment.

 

The goal is to increase desirable behaviors and reduce behaviors that interfere with an individual’s ability to learn in order to improve overall quality of life. ABA is considered an evidence-based “best” practice treatment by the US Surgeon General and by the American Psychological Association.

 

“Evidence based” means that ABA has passed rigorous scientific tests of its usefulness, quality, and effectiveness.

How Does ABA Work?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA):

  • Provides individualized, age–appropriate learning objectives
  • Provides one–on–one therapy, initially in a clinical center or in home, and then generalized to other settings, including school
  • Involves an intensive treatment program, between 20 and 40 hours of therapy per week
  • Provides continuous training and support to parents throughout services
  • Provides support to the child, family, teachers, and administrators during the child’s transition to school
